help! i went one puddle too far...
so im out hittin the mud today and havin tons of fun. my truck was filthier than it ever has been and i was doin great... then i decided to hit one puddle that i've been kinda cautious about in the past. well i hit it and water splashed everywhere(duh) and then as im about to get to the end of the puddle(it was about 100ft long about 1ft deep) my truck started bogging. at first i thought it was just the tires stuck in the mud. but i made it out and immediately the engine died. ...then it wouldnt start! finally i got it started and it sounded horrible. it would barely sputter to life then die. i let it sit for a while then got it started. i drove/sputtered to the nearest pressure washer and washed off my engine. now its runnin ok and sounds right but it sputters sometimes while im drivin down the road. any ideas? water/mud in engine? misfiring plugs? need new plug wires?
ps: sorry bout the long post
